What is Wrongful Death?
Wrongful death occurs because of negligence, misconduct or recklessness by another person or entity. The deceased’s spouse, children or parents can file wrongful death actions, and if damages are awarded, they belong to the party who brought about the action (i.e., the deceased’s loved ones). Also, the deceased’s estate can file an action for any pain and suffering the deceased went through before his or her actual death. Damages in a wrongful death action can be awarded for pain and suffering as well as loss of support or consortium, services and inheritance. Further, a wrongful death claim may arise in the following situations:
- Automobile Accidents
- Construction Accidents
- Fraternity or Sorority Hazing
- Medical Negligence
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Nursing Home Negligence
- Products Liability
- Swimming Pool Accidents
- Trucking Accidents
- And Many Other Instances
